The Summer Season

Cruisers is a “4 sports, 1 fee” club offering Speed Swimming, Diving, Water Polo and Synchronized Swimming. Athletes are able to participate in any or all of the 4 sports, and can attend an unlimited number of practices. Our summer season runs from May 1st to Mid August 2017, with a focus on stroke refinement, swim fitness, fun, social and team activities. The season includes training and participation in competitive meets and competitions for the year, including Regionals (in August Dates to be confirmed).

We offer two payment options by credit card:

  • A one-time payment fee for the summer season
  • Monthly payment plan up to May 31st registration

A two-week trial period is available to new registrants only, so that new participants can “try out” Cruisers with minimal financial risk. Participants must register and pay the full registration fees. After the first two weeks of practice, if a new participant decides that they want to withdrawal from Cruisers, a refund of all fees and deposits, less $75, will be granted. To withdraw, contact the Registrar no later than May 15th by email to request a refund.

Throughout the season the club will hold 3 or 4 fundraising events in which you and your family can participate. Funds raised will be credited against the $100 deposit already included in your membership fee. Members raising $100 or more will get the full $100 deposit refunded at the end of the year. Otherwise, the $100 fundraising deposit remains as part of your membership costs.
